Valve has released a small tidbit of information about the forthcoming Sniper update. Traditionally, the Sniper has used the range of his weapon to fight and often infuriate opponents from a distance. If you have ever played Team Fortress 2 then you know how it feels to constantly be shot by someone on the other side of the map. The unlockable upgrade for the sniper rifle will encourage the Sniper to get in closer to the battle. The benefits of the Sniper needing to get closer haven't been revealed yet, but I can't wait until all the servers are clogged with Snipers trying to get their achievements.
